Figure 3: Contig length distribution. The number of contigs generated de novo is shown in relation to their length in bps. Y-axis: number of contigs generated by assembling paired read 1 and read 2 data extracted from regions with at least 100 stacked read 2 sequences uniquely aligned to the B73 reference genome; X-axis: contig length distribution (in bps) (e.g., 1–100 = contigs <100 bps in length).
